Contemplation
Hello?
Hello?

I haven’t been here in ages and I’m just wondering if anyone even visits anymore… If you’re a reader and you’re out there, leave me a note. I’d love to see if this is even worth resurrecting!

Best photo app discovery 
Best photo app discovery 

This photo was taken this morning as I was walking to catch my bus to work. The morning light was lovely and I attempted to take a photo with my iPhone 6s, but it didn’t do the moment any justice Original shot: I was recently introduced to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, a free app from the more »

There’s something about Melbourne
There's something about Melbourne

It just gets me every time. The outdoors, the lifestyle, the friends and family. I was so happy to get back home to Singapore and to sync my chope into a good bowl of Bak Chor Mee… But still, memories of many a barbie, the sun, laughter and beer o’clock had me daydreaming. But we’re more »

Looking Ahead in 2016
Looking Ahead in 2016

54 minutes to 2016 and I thought I’d quickly pen down some thoughts about what the year has brought me and how to look ahead. 2015 was a big year. There were a lot of revelations and many, many learnings. I’ve never ever been able to look back on resolutions with full confidence of saying more »

Getting more out of life #newhashtag
Getting more out of life #newhashtag

Just a little over a year and a half ago, I went on that amazing pilgrimage to Vancouver and found a new riding ME. I swore that I’d have a new perspective. I promised that I would take more time to appreciate life and give thanks. I said I would do everything humanly possible to more »

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose…. Definitely not the Singapore experience of Christmas but you know what? We do have a pretty unique one still. Every year in December, the torrential rain comes and batters the streets. Some may not like it but I absolutely love it! We get more »

Our journey by Lightedpixels
Our journey by Lightedpixels

Over the years, we’ve been very fortunate to have friends who have watched us grow and who have supported our journey. But one friend has actually documented that process in a beautiful way that we’ll never forget. What makes me even happier is that no matter how old we get, the little ones will always more »

Thoughts of a working mum post sabbatical
Thoughts of a working mum post sabbatical

It’s been an incredible three months.  The past 90 days have been spent doing things I’ve not had the time to do – recharging, recalibrating and just generally thinking about how to live life better. I’ve been to the bank, I’ve re-organised our home life, I’ve spent a heap of time with our girls, I’ve more »

23.3.15

“Whereas it is an inalienable right of a people to be free and independent, I, Lee Kuan Yew, prime minister of Singapore, do hereby proclaim and declare on behalf of the people and the government of Singapore that as from today, the ninth day of August in the year one thousand nine hundred and sixty-five, more »

Rediscovery
Rediscovery

Recently I’ve realized how much of a haze the past few years have been.  Life has been a whole lot of ‘busy’ and while there is none of it I would regret, I’m starting to smell the roses again. I guess it helps that the little ones are in such a hilarious stage in life more »

Hello 2015
Hello 2015

Can you believe it’s 2015? I can’t. 2014 was a really, really big year in every sense of the word. I tried the hardest that I ever have before in 2014 and across all aspects of my life. I wouldn’t say it was a wash out by any means… a lot of it was very more »

A very full tank
A very full tank

Over 9 hours later… A few weekends ago, I took part in my first adventure race in years. Stupidly, I did zero training and I just went into it with a positive outlook and two really great teammates. And you know what? I died. Yes, we finished the race – well, all 53km that we more »

A piece of his past
A piece of his past

One very cool thing that was able to happen whilst we were in Vancouver was our meet up with Hubba’s ex-bowling coach, Ron. Ron had pretty much been a secondary father figure to Hubba during his competitive days and I had heard so much about this man and how he taught Andrew many life lessons. more »

Time is whizzing by

Do you find that as each year passes, life starts to pass you by even quicker than it did previously? These days, the days and months just fly by. It felt like just the other day I was talking to E about our planning meeting and just like that, it’s over. How is it almost more »

Missing the mountains
Missing the mountains

It's really hard not to think about Vancouver and miss it a lot. Is it possible to be soul mates with a place? When I close my eyes and think of the mountains and the clouds, the people and their kindness, the trees and the soul of the forest, it just brings me to a more »

My Best Subject
My Best Subject

This is probably the best photo I have ever taken in my history with photography. It was taken at Stanley Park in Vancouver last month, when Hubba and I went for a long walk together. We did lots of that. Walking. And sitting on benches. I find that hilarious – that our pastime of choice more »

Peek & Place – You’ve Got This
Peek & Place - You've Got This

When you come back from a significant trip, it’s easy to talk about where you went, who you were with, what you ate, anything you might have bought. But the truth is, I came away with a whole lot more than just memories of good food and couple selfies. The real souvenir was a mindset. more »

The Great BC – Before Children? No – British Columbia.
The Great BC - Before Children? No - British Columbia.

It seems like a lifetime ago that Hubba and I were in Vancouver on our first adventure together in 4 years. In reality, we’ve only been back for about 2 weeks and I suppose this blog post is long overdue. A month ago, we took the brave step of going on a two week holiday more »

Milestones

I have the urge to write and I’m not sure why. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that so much as happened in the first quarter and because of this I feel the need to document it. Not that anyone would care really, but it really has been pretty extraordinary. Charly more »

Evening thoughts on a random night in 2014

So it’s been such a very long time since I wrote that I wonder if anyone even visits this site anymore. The truth is, I am very far removed from my blog these days – possibly because I’m hardly ever at my computer when I’m not working. I throw every moment I can into my more »

My New Year’s Resolutions
My New Year's Resolutions

I realise it’s a little late to be contemplating my resolutions for the year but I figured I ought to put them down somewhere before I completely forget them altogether. By that, one would probably gather that my resolutions aren’t all that massive. They’re actually really bitty, unlike most people who may have mountains to more »

All I wanted for Christmas
All I wanted for Christmas

…. I already got. I had a big think about Christmas and what it means to me these days. I’m always asked about what I might want but the truth is, there is not much in the world that I do want and if there is anything I truly desire, I’d usually think to save more »

Sometimes it’s good to plod along…
Sometimes it's good to plod along...

It has been an interesting three weeks. I’ve been back at work and my focus has been on nothing but trying to settle back in and being the best mum I know how. Hubba also disappeared overseas for two of those weeks for training so sinking back in whilst shouldering the sleep deprivation alone wasn’t more »
